Awesom Wrench
Mike from TX wrote on May 17, 2016:

This is a great wrench for the price. I only use YHM hand guards so I haven't any problems fitting the barrel nut, nor did I have a problem with it slipping of the jammer nut. My only complaint is that it could be a little longer to get a little extra leverage when tightening to the next gas tube hole per YHM instructions. I had to use rubber mallet to line up the gas tube hole after getting it hand tighten.

Lugs are a little snug going into the barrel nut, and the spanner for the jam nut seems to wanna slip out if you're not careful, all in all a good product and it gets the job done.

Pins don't line up well; ring wrench MEH
JCFlag from AZ wrote on August 10, 2015:

It does the job, but could be better. Pins don't line up very well with the barrel nut. Had to coax it with a rubber mallet. The wring wrench end slips out of the ring grooves easily and can scratch up the finish.

A must if you buy a YHM Free Float Tube
William Myers from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

You really need this tool if you want to assemble this handguard correctly. It was a solid tool and worked great. I wish I could have just rented it seeing this is the only AR I will probably build. :-)

YHM Free Float Tube Handguard Wrench
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I bought this tool in advance of upgrading an AR-15 with standard M4 hand guards to a free float system. It is a pretty straight forward tool that is designed and manufactured by YHM, the manufacturer of the free float hand guard, so I have no concern as to it functioning as advertised. Thanks PA for making it available and charging 25% less than everyone else. That said, I have no reason to give it any but a 5 star rating.

YHM Jamb Nut Wrench
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I noticed YHM's jamb nuts measure 1.98" which is the same as the generic hand guard on the Colt LE6900. I've read a lot of complaints from people wanting to put a new hand guard on the LE6900 but not being able to get the stock guard off. Seated the YHM Handguard Wrench on the jamb nut, gave it a bit of a tap with a plastic hammer and it backed right off. Installing a new YHM Diamond Series hand guard was just as simple. Great tool, just make sure you have it set firmly in one of the four groves on the jamb nut.

Well worth the extra cost
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

This wrench is heavy duty and works WAY better than those cheap wrenches offered on Amazon that break the first time you use them. You get what you pay for when you purchase tools to work on your guns so don't cut corners by trying to get by with cheap junk tools.

As I needed! As soon as my .300 SOTA Barrel arrives I'm sure it will work great!

works as it should
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

The wrench is very simple yet extremely strong. A solid piece of equipment that provides a firm bite when used properly. I have nothing negative to say. This is the correct tool for the job and works as it should.

This should be included with the hand guard. It's thick and beefy and fits

Required for YHM FF Handguard
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

Wrench is required for installation and removal of YHM free float hand guards. It is of quality construction.

Necessary
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

If you have more that one rifle with a YHM tube on it, you will need one of these. Otherwise, it is almost impossible to line up the gas tube hole in the upper with the barrel nut. This tool saves time, but not really worth the price unless you have more than one YHM handguard.

Fast Shipping
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

Received this product fast and the handguard is of excellent quality.

Must have for YHM forearm install
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I wish it wasn't required for YHM forearm installations, but that is not for this review. Worked as advertised without an issue.

I guess its a must
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I got this because I was told I have to. Regardless I saved enough on the free float gaurd to pay for it, and the tool itself is great quality. YHM is becoming one of my favorite manufactures.

Worked Well, but...

Why not cut it so a Torque Wrench can be used with it as also a Barrel Wrench? (Which I did)

This wrench worked great.. It is a must have when installing the YHM barrel nut.

BUILT LIKE A TANK!
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

Not only is it the required tool to install and remove YHM handguard tension nut. It is invaluable at removing stubborn free float tube/barrel nuts, like those secured with red Locktite by a certian manufacturer... heat it with a torch and pound it with a mallet, the YHM Wrench worked like a champ! Excellent tool.

works as desired!!!

I have to say that dealing with your company has been nothing but a pleasure. I can honestly say I never fill these things out and very rarely comment on a company.But in this case I must. I am a retired police officer and I received nothing but professional service. From the email response to the items in stock and fast delivery. You guys are the best and will defineatly order from you again. Thank you so much and keep up the great work. What else can I say.
